Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Concerning The 'Jam Band' Label

I don't know what a "jamband" is, but I believe that the bands that are labeled in that genre are lacking. They can play their instruments well enough, but when it comes to style and songwriting abilities, they are not on the bus. A band like Umphrey's McGee is a jamband. They play well, but their influences extend about as far as Frank Zappa, and their songs suck. Today's bands such as Drive-by Truckers or Ryan Adams and the Cardinals display good influences, top-notch songwriting, and they can jam!

I saw the Drive By Truckers a few years ago and I wasn't impressed. They may have just been to drunk to get it together that night...slammin Jack Daniels on stage can only do so much for your stage presence before it bites ya in the ass.
